We took a road trip to the Blue Mountains this weekend and stayed at a bed and breakfast/farmstay. Although it bucketed with rain the entire first night and day it was still a welcome relief to get out of the city and to take the speed and tone of our days down a couple notches to enjoy the simpler things.
Unfortunately, being the sensitive folk we are, Indigo Brad and I suffered from terrible allergies the entire time which have now morphed into strong head colds and a fever. Meanwhile, the bull of the family, North, had croup for less than 24 hours and has almost completely recovered. I attribute his quick bounce back to a strong immune system, luck and the emergency visit to the homeopath on Friday.
All in all it was a lovely weekend despite the sniffles and sneezing. Brad and I enjoyed a few glasses of wine on Friday night together and played Monopoly into the wee hours. Tomorrow I'll post some photos of our apple picking adventure. This week is all about apple sauce, apple pie, apple crumble... and chicken soup.
